We arrived in Washington D.C. at close to midnight on the 2nd due to being diverted to Boston because of the severe weather here. We didn’t get to bed until like one o’clock in the morning but we did get up early. We had breakfast in the hotel. I had crepes with Nutella. I wish they had Speculoos.
Our tour took in the Capitol crypt, Rotunda and Old House chambers. Later we went to the House Gallery but no photos were allowed. They also showed us a film about Congress, the Capitol building and its history.
After the tour we walked down to the Air and Space Museum which we walked around. I have been to the one at Dulles and it is much better because it has an SR-71 Blackbird and a complete Space Shuttle. But they had the Wright Bros. 1902 Glider here.
That evening we had dinner at The Old Ebbitt Grill across from the Treasury Building.
This is Frederick and today, July 4th, we are going to watch some of the parade on Constitution Avenue before we come back and watch France V. Germany and Brazil V. Columbia in the World Cup.
